On 16 June 2016, in the framework of the Intensive Doctoral Week, Sciences Po Law School will hold a panel regarding Global Challenges in Adjudication.

The aim of the panel is to revisit contemporary issues in law and adjudication from different perspectives and in particular rethink the relationship between adjudication (in the broad sense) and law making in a global context through the following questions: How do international jurisdictions, from regional human rights courts to “privatized” adjudication like investment arbitration contribute to the creation of law in the fields concerned? Are we overstating or understating their work? To what extent can interests that are considered foreign to the rationale of these legal mechanisms be accommodated through adjudication (environmental issues before the WTO; security concerns before a human rights body; human rights before arbitrators)? If so, what are the tools (proportionality? mutual recognition? conflict of law mechanisms?)? Does it make sense in terms of legal practice to think in terms of specialised regimes (human rights law, trade law, business law)? Is there a global convergence in legal reasoning? Is it possible to respond to internal and external critique from within law?

The panel will take place with the participation of Professor Horatia Muir Watt (moderator), Professor and Judge Paul Lemmens, Professor Paul Berman, Professor Antonio Marzal on June 16th at Sciences Po Law School. Each participant would have about ten minutes for the questions put to them, with exchanges among the panel at the end of each. There would then be time for questions from the floor.
